Found this over at Hwerks.com, seems interesting (and fairly recent too):



WEST HAVEN, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 12, 2009 - NanoViricides, Inc. (OTC BB: NNVC.OB) (the "Company"), reported today that the CBS affiliate TV station WBRZ interviewed Professor K. Gus Kousoulas , PhD, in which he explained the potential implications of the Company's nanoviricides™ anti-Herpes drug candidates.

“Over 90% of the people are infected with Herpes, whether they know it or not,” said Dr. Kousoulas, adding “it can manifest as cold sores or genital herpes. [These manifestations] can be very painful, especially for women.” He also commented that “Unlike true love, herpes is forever,” referring to the fact that the herpes virus goes dormant in the body between recurrent manifestations, and that there is at present no cure for herpes.

“A nanoviricide drug could be an important breakthrough,” he said, explaining, “the duration of a cold sore could be reduced drastically, from a month to just a few days [by applying a nanoviricide skin cream],” based on studies conducted in the laboratories at the Louisiana State University's (LSU) Division of Biotechnology and Molecular Medicine (BIOMMED). In cell culture testing, his laboratory found that certain nanoviricides eliminated 99.99% of the virus from infected cells.

Seems a bit too optimistic for my tastes, but then the video article went on to explain how they might try to figure out a way to reduce or even eliminate transmission rates with nanoviricides within the next year, and they've already received new grants in research money for testing. So we'll see how it plays out, here's hoping.

NanoViricides, Inc. (OTC BB: NNVC.OB) (the "Company"), announced that it is developing FluCide(™), its flagship anti-influenza drug candidate, to work against all influenza types and subtypes. FluCide has been shown to be effective against both common influenza subtype H1N1, as well as two different variants of bird flu subtype H5N1.

The Company has previously announced excellent results in both animal studies and cell culture studies against widely different influenza subtypes and strains. If these results are confirmed in further animal and human studies, then FluCide would likely be considered the best ever drug effective against all influenzas. The Company is communicating its capabilities to various agencies involved in the current epidemic response.

this is potentially only (possibly better) treatment, not a cure.

      @hopeful22 Sorry, just to save me a bunch of reading and possibly getting nowhere..and I'm not sure I'm asking correctly.. Is cas12a in the casY category?  Is there some list showing each useful enzyme and which category it's in?
    • WilsoInAus
      @Hairpeesthere is absolutely nothing inaccurate in what I have said and I stand by EVERY word. There is not one ounce of fact or accuracy in any of your comments. I’m sorry for your misinterpretations, but their yours alone. I suggest you need to undertake considerable research before commenting further. Please lift yourself.

      I was going to post something about this but I figure this should help people understand before this thread goes haywire.  CAS12A remember cas12a  Instead of CRISPR cas9 crispr cas12a is a more precise and deemed more safe.  In the past couple weeks CRISPR has had a lot of bad publicity over new research, but last week it was discovered that another enzyme CAS12A is very precise and safe.  I am guessing that Excisionbio is going to switch gears and start using CAS12A instead of cas9.  please see the article published last week.  https://www.genengnews.com/gen-news-highlights/crispr-cas12a-more-precise-than-crispr-cas9/81256099

      bad UI design. but I agree. they probably consider HSV-1 and HSV-2 comparable enough and will do each with a different CAS to see what works better.. and then likely do another study with whichever wins the comparison...

      LOL Those bars don't say anything about effectivenes. They are an indicator about how far they have gotten in the preclinical efficacy studies stage.
